YOUR TUTOR

You can see Teresa Crickmars work locally in Primavera Gallery, Cambridge and she opens her workshop space for Cambridge Open Studios for weekends in July. She is a qualified teacher, Reiki master and has been designing and making jewellery for over 25 years. Teresa is a sought-after tutor. She creates a fun, relaxed atmosphere to learn in and oozes positivity. Learners join her classes a little unsure and sometimes lacking confidence with the skillset or creative elements but quickly become attached to jewellery-making with her enthusiasm for all things fire, metal, and sparkle. You will gain the skills to make beautiful, professional-looking work that will receive plenty of compliments. 

TOOLS AND MATERIALS

Once you have decided what you would like to make, let your tutor know so that she can order the materials, these will include sterling silver, stones and potentially gold filled wire. They will be at the workshop ready for you along with all the tools and equipment you will need to create your masterpiece. Aprons and safety equipment is provided, however if you need glasses for close up work you are advised to bring them. 

Refreshments are offered including sweet treats, cold drinks, tea, fresh coffee, and a vast selection of herbal teas. Toilet facilities are available on site and you are welcome to sit in the lush garden if you need a break.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS

No previous experience of metalwork is needed. A good level of hand-eye coordination is needed to complete fine work using torches, saws and motorised tools. You will need to be able to move safely in a workshop environment and be able to follow clear instructions easily. You must adhere to the health and safety aspects of using the equipment as demonstrated. 

COURSE FEE

The total course fee is £150, this includes three hours teaching time, materials, use of specialist equipment and a guarantee of a finished piece. The tutor will help you with extra time and support if needed. There will be materials in the workshop should you want to buy them at cost price to make additional items in the three hour workshop.
